In this thread everyone is mainly talking about bi-amping where one amp is used for the high frequencies and another amp is used for the mid/low frequencies.

In another thread they are talking about using one amp for each speaker - with one channel of the amp for the high frequencies and the other channel of the amp for the mid/low frequencies.

Any thoughts or experiences on which is better?

In a pro sound rack each amp is usaully restricted to a certain frequency range. Mostly just for gain and power reasons. Many big Hi-Fi rigs work this way too. Find the best amp for the frequency range and drivers.

In a small stereo rig you can do whatever suites you. Especially if you're using the same amp everywhere.

Hi Michael

Do you think either of the two methods would be slightly superior over the other?

I suppose one will be better due to "the fact that the tweeter amp won't be "polluted" with the back EMF of the woofer amp".......while the other might have better stereo separation because each channel will have its own amp and power supply.

Another question......

Assuming you have one set of input terminals connecting to a singal stereo volume pot.....do you split the signal before the input caps and have separate input caps for each amp.....or do you split the signal after the input caps therefore having one pair of input caps shared by both amps?
